I call my blog, "Things I know". This refers to a vast experience of life in general. As Madonna once said, I don't condone a lifestyle, I simply show one. However, I'm not an artist and not a big fan of Madonna, so whatever.
I was born Stephen Carl Brinkman on March 22nd 1967. Let's break that down........My mom wanted to name me Kile (her maiden name), however my dad wanted to name me Steve. A fought ensued, and my mother only agreed if she could spell it Stephen. That's better than what it could have been, Ralph William Brinkman III (dad's name but with Jr. at the end). Stephen means "Crowned One", which in my case, means I hit my head a lot. On the day I was born Bobby Hull scored is 52nd goal of that season. For you hockey fans I think that means something special, for the rest of us that's the most exciting thing that happened that day. I share my birthday with the following famous people, William Shatner, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Matthew Modine, Bob Costas, and Reese Witherspoon. This means nothing to me but usually people get very excited about it. I do secretly like that I share a birthday with William Shatner, I mean he's the captain of the Enterprise.
